Description leonstr 2008-05-08 20:54:59 UTC
When importing a Microsoft Word document with consecutive single line paragraphs
with top and bottom borders, the borders are lost apart from the first paragraph
and the end border on the last paragraph.

The following shows how the document looks in Word:

The following shows how the document looks in Writer:

The source document is in Word .doc format created in Word 2003.

This problem is also seen in OOo 3.0 Beta (BEA300_m2).

If I export the file from Word as .docx format the problem is still seen in 3.0
Beta. However, NeoOffice 2.2.2 Patch 11 correctly imports the .docx version (but
shows the same problem with the .doc version).

As you can see from my screenshot, it looks the same in Word 2003 as in OO
Writer on my system.
What is different between our installations of MS Word? Do you have newest
Service Pack 3 installed?

I think I may have attached the Word doc after loading it into OOo and saving 
the incorrectly converted version (i.e. the problem I am reporting). Sorry 
about that, I've attached the original version which should show the problem.

Same problem as issue 23118 and 71799.
